Man, I need to stop starting these at like 11:00-11:30 at night...
Some big news gaming wise. Booted Mario Galaxy back up, finally deciding that I'm going to beat it. It's such a great game... the orchestral music really makes it shine. More games need orchestral music. Aside from that I've started digging into the games I got from the holiday Steam sale, specifically Aquaria and i-Fluid. Liking both so far. May do writeups on them when I'm done. Also, much <3 to Aerox for being able to get games of L4D going much better than I can.
For non-gaming news, my Taekwon Do instructor thinks I can - and should - go for my black belt this year. Considering I'm only a red stripe right now that'll definitely be a tall order. Essentially it'll be red belt in early February, black stripe by June, and then train all summer hard for black belt in the fall. It'll be tough (for me at least), but doable. If anybody cares I'll provide updates. :)
*- Incognito, Episode 1 is now available. I will definitely be checking out the demo

*- Taterchimp's #1 game ending. Certainly the first "epic" emotional ending that I can think of
